Optional 12 Volt fan for use with Sun-Mar non-electric composting units

*Easily installed in the 4'' PVC vent stack



The 12 Volt Fan is meant to accelerate airflow in all non-electric units. It comes pre-installed in an 11'' piece of 4'' diameter vent pipe so that it will fit inline in your vent stack. It also protects against downdraft and increases the evaporative performance of your non-electric unit by about 10 to 15% (still not enough to evaporate all liquids on an NE).



Its purchase is optional with an Excel NE, a Centrex 2000 NE, or a Centrex 1000 NE.



In Which Situations would I need a 12 Volt Fan?

If you have to put any bends in the vent stack (Sun-Mar recommends no more than two 45 elbows, even with a 12 Volt Fan installed).

If your cottage is subject to downdraft.



In Which Situations Would Sun-Mar recommend a 12 Volt Fan?

If the unit is being used residentially

If you expect heavy seasonal use



In Which Situations Would Sun-Mar Not Recommend a 12 Volt Fan?

If you cannot run the fan continuously, it will act as a blockage in the vent stack. If you need to get around this, you can install it in a ''bypass vent'' off of the main stack.



If you live in a coastal area that is rich in salt air - you may want to consider purchasing a more expensive, but more durable fan from Nicro; these fans are used in marine applications and may be purchased from marine supply stores. Our fans will stand up to most weather conditions, but do not do well in salt air.

Is Installation of the 12 Volt Fan required on the above models?

AF (Air Flow) NE models:

These models require the installation of the 12 Volt fan to ensure that air is being drawn down the Sun-Mar dry toilet in the bathroom.



AC/DC models:

Installation of the 12 Volt Fan is only required on these models where both vent stacks have been installed, or any of the other situations exist where Sun-Mar recommends its installation.



Centrex 3000 NE:

While installation of the vent fan is not required on this model, it is highly recommended for assistance with airflow, or any of the other situations exist where Sun-Mar recommends its installation.



How Do I Install the 12 Volt Fan?

Choose a section of your vent where you will easily be able to access the fan, and connect it to the battery. Cut a suitably sized section of vent stack and insert the fan into the stack, ensuring that the piece is positioned correctly so that the fan is blowing upwards (coupling will be at the bottom). Caulk both seams with silicone for the best airflow.



Why can't I just use a computer fan?

Our fans are protected from moisture and weather, except in the case of air that is rich in salt (see above). While they may look like computer fans, they aren't.



How Do I Power the Fan?

With DC Power:

Purchase a solar panel appropriate to the wattage of your fan (5 Watt for the 1.4 watt fan, 10 watts or above for the 2.4 watt fan). You will also require a 12 Volt battery (Sun-Mar suggests a deep cycle marine battery for best results). Connect the wires on the fan (red wire positive, blue negative) to the appropriate terminals on the battery, and the appropriate wires on the solar panel to the battery. The battery will store the charge from the solar panel, ensuring continuous operation of the fan even at night or cloudy days.



With AC Power:

Purchase a 12 Volt AC Adapter from any electronics store. Cut off the female plug. Attach the positive wire to the red wire, the negative wire to the blue wire, and secure both with small wire connectors (marrettes). Plug into wall.



What Different Voltages and Watts are these fans Available In?

12 Volt 1.4 Watt Fan

This is the fan which is shipped when you order a 12 Volt Fan. It will do for most situations, and has the lowest draw.



12 Volt 2.4 Watt Fan

This fan increases the airflow level and is necessary for situations where there may be competing drafts, which is true in the case of the AF NE models and the AC/DC, dual-vented models.

PLEASE, NO PO BOXES – STREET ADDRESS ONLY!

Sun-Mar (S) warehouse is 99% in stock.

Sun-Mar ships UPS or Fedex to street addresses only, Ground or Express, from their Buffalo warehouse. Heavier items will ship via common carrier. You will be given the Express option on checkout.

You will get the tracking number to your email as shipment confirmation.

Since HI, AK & US Territories force air shipment, air ship rates will be applied to your order.
There is no flushing on the non-electric (NE) composting toilets, the waste drops directly into the composting drum. The process of composting really needs no electricty, since it is bacteria and oxygen powered. The drum is tumbled once or twice a week with the attached handle to oxygenate the compost.



The electric units have a heating element and fan built in that evaporates excess moisture and circulates air to aid in the composting process. The non electric units use an evaporation tray, but also have an overflow drain fitting for excess liquid. The non-electric units require a bigger (4”) vent stack to facilitate the chimney effect of the natural drafting.

The vent kits included in the shipping carton are sufficient for installation in most single story buildings. If more is needed they are normally easy to find. All vent pipes are thinwall PVC.



For more vent stack installation information, go here: http://www.sun-mar.com/insta_cent_vent.html



Toilet Installation

The second main task of installing a central unit is the waste piping installation. Go here for full information on how to do this: http://www.sun-mar.com/insta_cent_pipe.html



Electrical

All electric units are supplied with a power cord and pre-molded plug which connects to a standard (3) pin 115 Volt outlet and powers both the fan and heating element. 12 Volt fans for non-electric models can be installed in-line with the stack, and connected to a battery which draws from an alternate source of energy, such as a solar panel. Drains Central units are all fitted with 1" drains, which should be connected to an approved drain pit, container, or other facility. Go here for more information on handling excess liquid: http://www.sun-mar.com/installation/excessliquid.php



Winter Use

SUN-MAR units serve as a reliable year-round facility when prepared for continuous or periodic use during the cold winter months. If you use your cabin only once in a while in the winter, the unit may be used as a holding tank during this time. If your SUN-MAR will be in use every weekend in the winter, or in a residence, the temperature must be kept above 55 degrees F at all times to keep the compost going.

Every living organism consumes nutrients and creates waste. To transform waste back to nutrients and complete this cycle, nature uses the processes of decompostition and evaporation. As is often the case, nature seems to be doing business in the best way possible.



That's why Sun-Mar toilets are designed not only to harness these natural processes, but to optimize and accelerate them.



Toilet waste is over 90% water content. This can be evaporated and carried back to the atmosphere through the vent system. The small amoun
